      When apps have permissions on your phone everyone is sharing data! Except maybe Apple who are well established.

          Huawei will make it work, time will tell don't underestimate huawei, you cant stop technology and they lead. Dont talk shit windows is base on linux , they already shipping computers with linux with a very friendly environment for user that is much better than windows. They will overcome the android ban.

            Why would the US even do this? they pretty much shoot themselves in the foot by taking billions of dollars in sales away from american based companies... What is the reason behind this?

                    If you ban Huawei, you might as well ban all the other China brands too like Xiaomi, Vivo, Oppo, Lenovo.

                                    Banning Huawei is just as good as waking them from coma.

                                      Why don’t you save yourself some time and investigate the 5g issue and why Huawei will have it next year and why the US won’t have a seat at the table and other countries will. What you talking about is a waste of time.

                                        People uses APK apart from playstore. So they could survivor. Well might be alot of work but I believe it's an path way to the future. So soon it's gone be options and trust me it's gone be crazy .

                                            So, Because trump believes huawei products spy, this means everyone will buy P Smart Z because it has a notch less screen

                                                  The already released models shouldn't be affected by the ban. At least that's what we're told by Huawei. It's the new models (Mate 30 and onward) that most likely won't have any Google apps etc. pre-installed.

                                                It's the technology inside this phone. Apple and Samsung cannot compare to there camera technology! 40mp with a 50x zoom no way apple or Samsung can compare. USA don't want folks sharing this kind of content.

They don’t want to do business in China and they support users to create platforms to overthrow Chinese gov to create chaos and billions of refugees in China therefore China must not let tweet and face book operate in China. All of them work for the US gov

                                                                Too many ignorant morons don't get the fact that China is not a free market or open economy and that the ChiCom dictatorship controls every company and entity in China. These utter fools think that they are dealing with a country based on the rule of law. The only law in China is whatever the Communist party of China decides is the law - there is no independent legislative power or independent judiciary in China. All Chinese companies serve the ChiCom Party and its interests. Let's just forget about the issues of technology theft, copyright infringement, technology transfer requirements, and all the rest that comes with doing business in China. The fact is, that Huawai, like every other Chinese company is controlled by the ChiCom Party and PLA and will do their bidding if ordered to. Anyone who allows Huawei or any other ChiCom company to build and essentially control a crucial infrastructure system like communications is basically ceding that infrastructure to the control of the ChiCom Party.

People will flash those new Google software faster than you can blink. If you would even want them to begin with. Because Google services were banned and unusable without a VPN in China for a while now. Not only that, but usa market is just a tiny fraction for huawei. So, not a big loss on huawei's part.
